About Us


Our Approach


A nonprofit (501c3) corporation in Kentucky pursuant to KRS Chapter 273

The HOOD's  goals are focused on programs and ​services that will empower and educate the youth and families being served.  The purpose of education and empowerment is to help at-risk youth and vulnerable young adults build a positive self-esteem, improve their self-image, and enhance their self-worth; while increasing personal responsibility for actions and behaviors.

Our plan is to achieve our goals by providing the youth and families served with support services and resources necessary to help them enhance their ability to achieve long term success.
